We’re delighted to have been crowned Best Beauty Retailer at the prestigious Sunday Times Style Beauty Awards for the sixth year in a row.

The Sunday Times Style Beauty Awards are the UK’s largest consumer-voted beauty awards, with over one million votes cast this year.

We have continued to transform, innovate, and improve our beauty offering to cater for all budgets, as well as celebrate individual skin and hair types. Over 1,600 new beauty lines from over 100 different brands have already arrived at Boots so far this year, and as part of our on-going beauty reinvention journey, there are now 170 new and refreshed premium beauty halls in Boots stores up and down the country.

No7 Restore & Renew Serum Foundation and The Real Zing Body Scrub from Soap & Glory came second in both the Best Base Makeup and Best Body Care categories. Soltan, a leading suncare range for adults, children and babies, also scooped third place in the Suncare Saviour group.
